Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic Film's 2nd Promo, Additional Cast Unveiled

posted on by Karen Ressler

The official website of Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic (Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic), the upcoming Black Butler anime film, added additional cast members and a second promotional video on Tuesday. In addition, the website unveiled a new key visual by character designer Minako Shiba.

The promotional video previews the theme song "Glass no Hitomi" (Glass Eye) by the band SID. (Note: the YouTube video linked is region-locked to Japan.)

The newly confirmed returning cast members include:

Aniplex previously streamed a promotional video for the film in August.

The film will open in Japan on January 21.

The film adapts the "Gōka Kyakusen" (luxury liner) arc, which appeared in the 11th through 14th volumes of Yana Toboso's original Black Butler manga. The story is set on the luxury liner Campania and centers around secrets to resurrecting the dead.

The returning cast includes:

Noriyuki Abe is directing the anime at A-1 Pictures, and Hiroyuki Yoshino is writing the script. Minako Shiba is designing the characters and serving as chief animation director. Yasunori Mitsuda is composing the music. All are returning from the earlier Book of Circus and Book of Murder anime, and A-1 Pictures and Shiba have been involved in the franchise since the first Black Butler anime.
